I am just curious as to what kind of escorts you both have and what type of clutch you replaced your stocker with...I do all my own work to my car and I spent 150 for the clutch and pressure plate and throwout bearing...the job was fairly easy so I was just astounded at the prices that you guys are paying...and NO NO NO, dont drive that distance with the clutch that you have now, would suck ass to get down the road with a bunch of stuff packed in your car and Boom, no locomotion....best to drive something else or borrow if ya can, I have to agree with James on that 1

Thats right, you did shatter your clutch didnt ya...but I will tell you this, they did rip ya off....like I said in my earlier post..I got back to the factory clutch and got all I needed for the install for $150.00 and no probs..clutch went on mine at about 208k, so I cant complain with it...and I would have also bitched about the clutch being thrown away...sounds kinda iffy to me, specialy if they knew you wanted to see it

Auto zone has some of the cheapest clutches I have seen and they are factory replacements, thats what I got and its doing fine..When I replaced my clutch, it took about two days to finish because of other probs with the car, such as stripped bolts and such..Plus, I live by the term "If you want something done right,Do it yourself"...has worked for me for quite awhile..And Siragan, sorry to hear about all the hell you went through with your ride as well...people these days think as if $ is easy to come by, but for most of us, it isnt, and these phkrs go around tearing our sh!t up, it pisses me off quite highly...thats why I now do all my own work..I was tired of getting screwed by the mechanics at shops, so I said to hell with it, I will do it myself and fix it or get another damn car...thank god I actually fixed my problems...honestly guys, if there is anything to a car that you can do yourself with just a little bit of time and effort, best you do it..specially for a clutch, not at all a hard thing to do and not many tools needed for the job, plus its not like you dont have enough people on here to walk you through most of the job :wink:

well, as for myself...i have never had the flywheel resufaced......I believe that might be the only thing that you need to have a shop do, the resurfacing that its..I know I should have had it done as well,but it is doing fine for me with no probs...but I would suggest finding a shop that you can trust to do this work for you, if the flywheel itself is severly scored, i know that you will need to replace it,also any chips or cracks warrants replacement as well
